Do you remove the collar or let it stay at the furler
All things considered I am a fan of a stack pack/boom bag with integrated lazy jacks.
That is a North Sails gennaker
with a North Sails tack strap. Fortunately shortly after this picture was taken the owner lost
and bought an ATN tacker. I took this boat (Nauticat 37) around Vancouver Island several times.
I do like the tacker. It keeps the tack under control and off the pulpit.
We store with the gennaker
in the bag attached to the the tack. When you use the ATN tacker, make sure that the snap shackle is attached to the tack. I attach the tack pennant to the ring. That permits you to "blow" the tack if the dousing bag gets fouled. That has happened to me.
